Based on this reflection, respond to the following: Looking back at your own experiences and influences, which dynamic would you say had the biggest impact on your own development during childhood and adolescence and the role that you played in your own family? Give reasons for your answer. Think about your role in the context of your family. How is it explained by the various family dynamics such as your temperament, gender, placement in the sibling group, parent’s life stage, marital quality of parents, traditions, expectations, and so on? Using the module readings, Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research your findings further. Incorporate information from at least two of these academic sources to support your statements and ideas in your response to the following: How does your biggest impact align with the research? Who are the major proponents (theorists past or current) of your chosen dynamic and how did they reach these conclusions? Ask two adults what or who had the most impact on them. Compare this data with your experience and your research about prominent dynamics. Write a 2–3-page paper in Word format. Be sure to include separate title and reference pages. Apply APA standards to citation of sources, including use of in-text citations and full references.

  Sometimes, during heated discussions and debates about social policy, the underlying reasons for the policy go unnoticed.

As you assume the role of a social work policymaker, consider the importance of keeping the needs and experiences of vulnerable populations at the forefront of your mind in your advocacy efforts. This can help to assure effective policy practice. For this Assignment, you will analyze a state, federal, or global social welfare policy that affects an at-risk, marginalized, oppressed, underrepresented, or over looked group population. Finally, consider the impact of social policy from the perspective of the group you selected. By Day 7 Assignment (5-7 double-spaced pages, APA format). In addition to a minimum of eight scholarly references, which may include electronic government documents and reputable websites, your paper should include: A description of the current policy approach for addressing the social issue you selected A description of the current policy goals for addressing the social issue you selected A description of the population the current policy approach covers An explanation of the funding levels for the current policy approach and whether they are sufficient to address the issue An explanation of how this policy may affect at-risk, marginalized, underrepresented, overlooked, or oppressed populations. Identify a specific at-risk population. An analysis of whether or not the policy meets the needs of the population groups most affected by the policy.

  You have been called in to consult on cases that may require mandated treatment. After reviewing the PSY699 The ethics of mandated treatment scenarios (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., choose two to discuss in your initial post. Begin your research with the required resources for this week. Using the specific situations presented in each of the scenarios you have chosen, conduct further research to help inform your recommendations for each individual. A minimum of one resource per scenario, beyond those already required for the assignment, must be included in your initial post. In your post, construct clear and concise arguments using evidence-based psychological concepts and theories to present your recommendations as to whether or not treatment should be mandated for the individuals in each of the scenarios. As you write your recommendations, be certain to provide insights into the following questions. What are the ethical principles and implications raised by legally mandating clients into treatment?  What evidence exists regarding the effectiveness of treatment with and without coercion for this type of situation?  What would be the challenges in evaluating the effectiveness of mandated treatment?  How might mandated treatment impact your clinical decision making as the mental health professional assigned to these cases? What client factors might limit or augment the potential benefits of treatment if it were mandated? Integrating concepts from your research and the required readings, offer insights across different content domains as to why you have reached these conclusions. Explain how you used the APA Ethical Code of Conduct to guide your decisions. Evaluate the generalizability of your specific research findings to the situations presented and provide a rationale as to why this research supports your recommendations.
